The TORCH Comics and Graphic Novels network are hosting talks with Bryan and Mary Talbot on "Grandville and the Anthropomorphic Tradition" and "The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia".
Esteemed comics creators Bryan and Mary Talbot discuss their recent work and artistic practice. Bryan addresses his long-running and much-celebrated Grandville series in relation to the anthropomorphic tradition, the most recent installment of which, Force Majeure, will be on sale at the event (along with others). Meanwhile, Mary offers her thoughts on The Red Virgin and the Vision of Utopia, which chronicles the incredible life of the anarchist, teacher, orator and poet, Louise Michel. On Saturday 3rd March, from 12-2pm, both Bryan and Mary will be doing a book signing at Oxford's comics and graphic novels shop, Inky Fingers, on Cowley Road.
